    Default impossible to install java

    Hi,

    for some reason I uninstalled my old 6.x JRE, and installed the latest one, 7u4.
    ever since then none of my browsers, neither firefox nor opera can find java.
    I reinstalled the JRE at least 4 times, but nothing changed. I am not a java expert,
    (actually hate it), but I don't think that this situation would be something odd.
    in the java control panel/advanced tab under default java branch I can not check
    in the "Mozilla family" persistently, as it remains unchecked when I open it next time.

    If I go to the java.com test page, it says "An old version of Java has
    been detected on your system."

    my os is win7 64bit, my account has admin rights, any hint please ?

    Default Re: impossible to install java

    I know for sure that IE only recognizes a 32 bit Java version. Do you happen to have a 64 bit machine? Install the 32 bit Java version.

    kind regards,

    Jos

    ok, never mind, I installed the 64bit jre, which does not work with 32 bit browsers
